Manipuri Muslim Online Forum (MMoF) – Press Release – Sangai Festival 2013
Asking and Demanding our Ministers to Take an Urgent Decision to Include Manipuri Muslim Pictures in Theme and Stalls in Sangai Festival – 2013
DO. No.: MMOF/PR/SangaiFestival/2013
Dated: 17th November, 2013
Manipuri Muslims, locally known as Meitei-Pangals, are inherent fabric of the diversity that Manipuri society represents. We have a history of more than 400 years in this land and have been part of turbulent times and harmonious existence that comprise the glorious past of this “Jewel of India”.
Some of the prominent Muslims had highly recognizable contribution in sports, economic, social and political sphere of Manipuri society. Sangai Festival is mirror to Manipur’s socio-cultural and socio-economic landscape. Manipuri Muslims Online Forum request the responsible authority to include stalls representing the culture and social life of Manipuri Muslims in the coming edition of Sangai festival.
The stall will strengthen the identity of this backward community and integrity of Manipuri society. An urgent decision in this regard should be taken by the Department of Art and Culture and the minister and MLAs from Muslim community.
